It's Talk Like a Pirate Day!


My pirate name is:

Black Jenny Bonney

Like anyone confronted with the harshness of robbery on the high seas, you can be pessimistic at times. You can be a little bit unpredictable, but a pirate's life is far from full of certainties, so that fits in pretty well. Arr!

Bad to worse

It is simply heartbreaking, watching the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina unfold.

Chertoff, Bush, and the rest of this administration should be ashamed of themselves. That goes double for Grover Norquist. These idealogues don't believe in "Big Gummint" and have lulled even poor and middle-class folks into voting against their interests. Now we can see the results of when monies for domestic security are instead spent on military adventurism. Feh!

A great post here by a woman named Cherie about people too poor to flee the area, other thoughts about this disaster (hey Chertoff, you gettin' this?!).

Today's society gossip pages say that while New Orleans was getting hammered, Condi Rice was enjoying a showing of Spamalot. The next day, she went shopping for shoes. This after Bush was shown playing guitar while this disaster unfolded, before cutting his vaction short by TWO WHOLE DAYS so he could return to Washington and try, try, try to look Presidential. Man, these people just have no sense of responsibility or decorum. This should be the end of the Conservative movement in this country, but, alas, I doubt enough people will wake up.
